The role of the Hygienist
The Hygienist is there to help you look after your teeth and gums. Obviously, you have the biggest influence on looking after your teeth as you are brushing them twice a day. However, the hygienist can help you with techniques, advice on cleaning aids and show you any areas that need more attention, as well as cleaning your teeth.
Some people have an increased susceptibility to gum disease and may require appointments more regularly than every six months, but our hygienists can advise on that as well.
If you have let things go a bit, you may require a more intensive session of periodontal therapy. Our team will guide you through the process and work out a plan especially designed to look after you and your dental health.
